COMMUNITY EDUCATION
The men and women of the Belmont Fire Department welcome you to become familiar with the Department and the services provided to our community. We realize that one of the best ways to prevent a fire or injuries is through education. Through a variety of programs the Department strives to reduce life and property loss. Only one visit per day may be scheduled. If you have more than one group, you will need to submit a separate registration form for each group and their visits will need to be scheduled on different days. Please contact the Fire Prevention Bureau at (603) 267-8333 for more information.

The options available for Community Education are:

FIRE STATION TOURS
The Belmont Fire Department offers tours of its headquarters located at 14 Gilmanton Road for the purpose of increasing safety awareness. 

Tour groups are designed for approx. 5 - 20 people.  There must be adequate adult supervision for children. Firefighters remain ‘in-service’ during tours. Fire companies may need to respond to emergencies. If they do, it will be necessary for the tour to be rescheduled and your group to exit the station. Also, the visit may be cancelled at the last minute with no notification due to emergency response requirements. Please keep this in mind when visiting. 

Firefighters have serious work to do. Birthday party groups are welcome to tour the station but may not hold party festivities at the station. However, we can come to your facility (see FIREFIGHTER VISITS). 

Fire station tours may be scheduled between the hours of 9:00am – 11:00am and 1:00pm – 4:00pm, Monday – Sunday. Evening tours are scheduled under special circumstances. Please allow 2 weeks notice to schedule your visit. Station tours last between 20-40 minutes depending on the age group and topics discussed. 

Safety discussions and handout materials vary for different age groups. Please specify the number of participants for each age group on tour. 

FIREFIGHTER VISITS
Firefighters can visit your facility for safety education and workplace training. 

Facility visits are designed for groups of 10 or more people. If children will be present, an adequate number of chaperones must be present to quickly clear the children from the fire truck or ambulance if there is an emergency. A parking area must be provided where the fire truck or ambulance can get in and out quickly in the event of an emergency.
